days. we now know that president obama has been making a flurry of calls, he was on the phone with the president of france. we know earlier he spoke with the prime minister of the uk. it seems to be that they now have enough information and now what's happening is the allies are getting together to decide what is the best way forward. >> and chris, what are the options that the u.s. is considering? >> reporter: well, no boots on the ground. no no-fly zone. what we're hearing is potentially what's being considered at least standoff options. fighter jets, firing from outside syrian air space. perhaps cruise missiles fired from one of four navy destroyers in the mediterranean. one of those moved closer to syria. all are equipped with tom hawk cruise missiles to hit land targets from the sea and we know the pentagon recently updated the list of targets potentially to go after not only command bunkers but the actual delivery systems, the artillery batteries and launch systems that could be used to deliver chemical weapons. i'm told by sources that basically all of these options are
to have these conversations in the days ahead. president obama has also been in close touch with leaders of our key allies and the president will be making an informed decision about how to respond to this indiscriminate use of chemical weapons. but make no mistake. president obama believes there must be accountability for those who would use the world's most heinous weapons against the world's most vulnerable people. nothing today is more serious and nothing is receiving more serious scrutiny. thank you. >> secretary of state kerry there with a forceful response to sir why's use of chemical weapons. the united states says it has undeniable evidence that it was used on citizens last week and the secretary pointed out that he had reviewed video from the aftermath of that attack last week and was struck as a human being and as a father by the video, mandy, of that father holding his young, dead child as a result of that attack. we welcome you now to "closing bell" for cnbc. >> we were just listening, of course, as secretary of state kerry and, you know, bill, it was heart wrenching, sol of
be leaving for the same reasons that bill daly left as chief of staff of the obama administration. those jobs during the obama years become almost secondary when it comes to economic policy because the president leans so heavily. she is the power center of this administration both from a domestic policy standpoint and a domestic economic policy standpoint so those jobs become less important in the scheme of things. not unimportant, but less important. cheryl: charlie, thank you for calling in with that huge breaking news. charlie gasparino, our senior correspondent with some market moving news on the administration. we want to check in on the market. we are actually session lows right now. lauren simonetti on the floor of the new york stock exchange. syria is the situation, are there any other factors we are talking about on the floor this morning? lauren: syria is the talk right now. we are about 20 points away from session lows for the dow, which is actually the best performing major market right now. the broader market down by 1%. if you look at the volume, it is a little bit more than it

weapons attack which president obama blames squarely on the syrian government? jill dougherty is standing by at the white house and, jill, i want to ask you a couple questions here. first of all, we heard from the president. he says no doubt the assad regime used chemical weapons on its own people here. he will be briefing members of congress later in the evening. what do we expect to hear from the president today? >> well, we may not hear anything specifically publicly. this, they have presented at least they have this intelligence estimate, this i should say intelligence report that musters whatever evidence they have that the regime as they would argue did use chemical weapons. they're presenting that to the members of congress. this would be presumably a classified report, and then it is unclassified for the public, and we have been promised that will come out this week. so today is thursday. one more day after this. then they have to decide what to do. suzanne, that's where it gets more complicated because every minute they have to be -- if there is to be a military response, they ha
it again, i'm not in. i don't believe this is the right call, not now. thankfully president obama is handling the situation very carefully. >> we have not yet made a decision, but the international norm against the use of chemical weapons needs to be kept in place nobody disputes or hardly anybody disputes that chemical weapons were used on a large scale in syria against its population. we're consulting with our allies and the international community. i have no interest in any kind of open-ended flit in syria, but we do have to make sure that when countries break international norms, that they're held accountable. >> very convincing, no question about it. i'm still not on board. i'm glad to see the president of the united states is backing away from his red line statement. we have to be fair about this. we do have a history of presidents misspeaking, and we need to give him some room here if he decides not to his syria soon. if president obama does, if he says yes to hitting syria, he needs to get the full approval of the congress. the president i think needs politically both demo
will we do? let me emphasize, president obama, we in the united states, we believe in the united nations, and we have great respect for the brave inspectors who endured regime gunfire and obstructions to their investigation, but as ban ki-moon, the secretary-general has said again and again, the u.n. investigation will not affirm would used these chemical weapons. that is not the mandate of the u.n. investigation. they will only affirm whether such weapons were used. by the definition of their own mandate, the u.n. can't tell us anything that we haven't shared with you this afternoon or that we don't already know, and because of the guaranteed russian obstructionism of any action through the u.n. security council, the u.n. cannot galvanize the world to act as it should, so let me be clear. we will continue talking to the congress, talking to our allies and most importantly talking to the american people. president obama will ensure that the united states of america makes its own decisions based on our values and interests and on its own time line. we know after a decade of conflict the a
